    Yeah, i got a pair of the tour 315's they're awesome sticks :) put a little lead on 3,6,& 9 and you have yourself a more powerful prestige mp, essentially. Very underrated stick in my opinion.

    Yep, I demoed the 300 over the summer and it was a nice stick. I almost purchased a few but ended up going with the Ezone xi because it felt a bit more solid. As mentioned, the quality is high and the feel is superb. I demoed this against the IG Instinct, Ezone xi, Vcore 100s, and Babolat PD. The Mantis had the best feel, but it was also the lightest and the lowest powered. Unfortunately I didn't have it long enough to experiment with lead...really nice stick though.

    Between the baseline and netcord.
    The 305 is a very solid frame. Lots of potential, it's pretty much a foundation stick, easy to upgrade and customize.
